Travelers departing from Shanghai's Pudong airport now have to provide nucleic acid test reports or receive on-site testing on arrival at multiple domestic cities.

Shanghai's Pudong New Area and Songjiang District have been listed as "COVID-19-related areas" by some Chinese cities after six locally transmitted COVID-19 cases have been reported in the two districts since August 18.

Cities including Beijing, Urumqi in northwest Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, Sanya in south Hainan Province, Nanyang in central Henan and Xi'an in northwest Shaanxi, are requiring travelers departing from Pudong International Airport to acquire a negative nucleic acid test report within 48 hours.

Passengers must provide the reports to the airlines at the Pudong airport before boarding the aircraft, according to China Southern Airlines.
